Health Benefits of Turmeric – the Yellow Superfood

Written by miravvi Editor 4th July 2022

Traditionally, Turmeric is a spice that comes from the root of the curcuma longa plant and has been a staple of South Asian and Indian cuisine, contributing to the bright golden colour and rich flavour of many curry dishes. However, Turmeric is more than just a flavouring! Since around 500 BCE, Turmeric has also been used in India as an important part of Ayurvedic, the traditional system of medicine from India that is still practiced today. Now the world has decided to take notice of this superstar root centuries after it was first discovered and now we simply cannot get enough – for all of the right reasons!

More than 200 phytochemical compounds, called curcuminoids, are found in Turmeric. Their pigment gives Turmeric its intense yellow colour. Also, they contribute to the popularity of Turmeric as a superfood! Curcumin is the most important curcuminoid and active compound in Turmeric that have many scientifically proven health benefits.

Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory properties*

The body’s inflammatory response is important for overall good health. Research* shows that curcumin may support a healthy and balanced inflammation response.

Sun damage, wrinkles, and dark spots in the skin can be reduced by Turmeric due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Migraines and headaches can be result in stress, weariness, neck tension, poor posture, and other problems due to the pain and discomfort they create. Due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics of Turmeric, one of its many advantages is that it may lessen the frequency of headaches and migraines.

PMS no longer*

Premenopausal women who have premenstrual syndrome (PMS) experience a variety of behavioural, psychological, and physical changes. Curcumin has been said to aid in the treatment of PMS because of its neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties. According to one study*, curcumin significantly lessened behavioural and emotional PMS symptoms like mood swings and menstrual cramps.

A speedy recovery*

The immune-stimulating and anti-microbial properties of Turmeric have also been said to hasten recuperation, particularly after surgery. Turmeric may helps wounds heal more quickly and lowers the chance of infection. Additionally, Turmeric eases weariness and post-operative pain, which is a health benefit within itself. We all need recovery time however giving our body what it needs, will help us right back.
